Bankruptcy and Bunny

I already received official court notification that my debt has been discharged, but over bunny weekend I received a final letter from my beautiful bunny lawyer stating that the case is closed and our business is finished. I was happy to receive it just to have more official reassurance that I'm in the clear, to know that there are no lingering lawyer bills that could strike at any time (medical community, take note of the professionalism there), and because she included in the note that she was happy to have met me and hopes to see me again sometime.

The last bit struck me as a little odd (nice, but strange). Hearing something like that from a bankruptcy lawyer is akin to a mortician cheerfully shouting "Hope to see you all again soon" at the successful conclusion of a funeral or a surgeon sending Christmas cards to his patients with the message "I look forward to your repeat business". Besides, I can't file for bankruptcy for another 10 years, and I doubt the whole "I'm sick and in major debt to the healthcare system" pickup line is enough to lure her away from her husband.

And don't even start with the whole "You should totally ask her out - you never know" bit like several of you did when I mentioned that my married Japanese teacher was really cute. I don't date married women and I don't sour a professional relationship by hitting on people when I depend on their services. Note - it was mostly the women who kept trying to get me to ask out my J-teacher. So much for defending your own.

You should become friends with her and see if she has any single friends!

Jay said...

I agree w/ Avitable. Seriously, does she have any sisters? Cousins? Is she the contact for any young, naive and vulnerable Bunnies just moving to this country who don't have any friends and need some companionship?

Gib said...

What can I say? Lawyers are awesome. The world needs more of us.

Robin said...

Totally Facebook her.

Captain Dumbass said...

Avitable and Jay are right, she could hook you up. Maybe with some bankrupt but healthy bunnies.

Ask if she needs a place to house a few dozen of the 'secret' girls that are coming here. I'm sure you'd be nicer to the girls than some yakuza crime boss. They may even show their appreciation in various ways....

Avitable - I'll drop by her office around lunchtime with the letter as proof that she wants to hang with me.

Jay - I'll forward all of those non-creepy questions to her and let you know how it goes.

Gib - I don't know how we ever made it out of the stone age without you.

Robin - I don't Facebook. Is that some fancy new sex act?

Captain Dumbass - that could work. Now that I'm bankrupt I have more money saved than ever, so I'm in the perfect place to trade money for sex.

metalmom - I already have my walk-in closet converted to a bunny cage, so I'm ready to take them on.

Did they make you do to this hearing where you had to speak into a tape recorder for the bankruptcy? I had to have this guy ask me questions and speak loud enough to be heard as my lawyer stood by we with a hand on my shoulder. LOL!

It took me a few weeks to stop freaking out and stuff because I was so use to being stalked by debt collectors. I could finally wind down.

SJ said...

If you don't ask her out you will never know if she knows karate as the stereotype tells us.

Grant said...

Ricardo - the hearing bit still stands, but it has evolved over the years. For one thing, they no longer ask why you're declaring. I would have loved to have my bunny lawyer there to comfort me, but instead some white guy with booze on his breath stood in for her.

SJ - I assume that she is secretly a ninja and can rip my still-beating heart out of my chest before I die, so I'm treating her with professional respect.
